Commentary

Hugs from the players, they shake hands, Royals win by 5 wickets, fireworks in the back ground after the Pathan fireworks. Warne is a happy man and so is his team, a good game of cricket. It was the Royals bowling that did it for them today and some wonderful striking by Pathan. Smith and Pathan bringing them home.

Smith; "We had the power hitters and we knew we could get through." A tough game coming up for the Rajasthan Royals against the Chennai Super Kings on thursday.

Sehwag: "We dropped couple of catches, may be if we had taken them, it would have been different. Till Yusuf came in, we were in control but he played well to hit some big sixes"

Warne: "We wanted someone at the top to take responsibility, so we tampered with the batting order. Pathan's striking was amazing. Had a chat with Munaf and he has done well and the rest of the bowlers."

No surprises for the Man-of-the-Match, it is Yusuf Pathan.

Pathan: "Today was my day, we targeted the smaller boundaries.".

Thanks for being with us, we hope you have enjoyed the commentary, do join us again for the double-header tomorrow, until then bye from all of us here at Cricinfo. Thanks to Raju and Gopi, who have helped us with the scoring.
